Hon. Ezra Brainard,
Pres. Middlebury College,
On the morning of the 4th. inst. a number of students
from your college, I understand the freshman class, returned from
Brandon to Middlebury on our sleeper train. They did considerable
damage to furniture of the station, taking away a number of
electric lamps, one or two brooms and other small articles and
ruining our station clock. It is estimated thay we were done
a damage of at least $10 and I would respectfully request that
you take the matter up with the class in question and see that a
check is sent for the amount named at an early date, which will
settle the matter satisfactory to this Company.
